Exercise: A question of health or a social duty?
In the 70s, being slim was trendy. The 80s saw the spread of a dangerous illness: obesity. At the same time, technology became an important part of everyday life, encompassing both the workplace and family life. Simultaneously, gyms have always stayed important.
Cooking with Grandma: Chocolate salami
In the following Meeting Halfway article we reveal the recipe for chocolate salami: with both Portuguese and Italian origins, it owes its name to its appearance, which is reminiscent of a cured meat but it is actually a cold dessert made of biscuits and chocolate. Very quick and easy to prepare, it only requires a few ingredients and is perfect for hot summer days since no cooking is required.

Cooking during quarantine: milk torrijas
We find ourselves in very unusual times: as we know, because of coronavirus, quarantine continues. So, despite the arrival of spring and Easter festivities, we have to conduct ourselves responsibly and stay home. Just yesterday, Easter Sunday, I was thinking about happy moments from my Erasmus period in Seville, back in 2017; a time when everyday life flowed normally and we were free to go out, travel and explore the whole world whilst coming into contact with other cultures. Remembering the past, I decided to spend my afternoon cooking milk torrijas, a traditional Spanish recipe of the Easter period.
